Hi Donald

I recommend you contact an acknowledged expert on U.S. as well as UK tax law.

We have good experience of Frank Hirth (http://www.frankhirth.com). We were introduced to them by UKTI.

You might also find our web site (www.ExportAction.com) helpful.

Best of luck.

Donald:

The Delaware LLC statute provides that a company will not be deemed to be doing business in Delaware just because it is a member of an LLC (Delaware or "foreign"). The likely upshot of this is that you are not required to register for state taxes in DE on that basis alone. I doubt there would be a federal tax registration requirement either, without other facts, but that's a little outside my expertize.

Hi Donald,

Thanks for reaching out on the Open to Export portal. We recently posted an article about taxes, please see the article here: http://opentoexport.com/article/top-ten-u-s-trade-questions-4-tax/

Also, it might be best to contact the Delaware Economic Development Office for the most accurate and up-to-date information, direct link here: http://dedo.delaware.gov/

Hope this helps!

Best,
